It’s Friday night and you have had a hard day at the office. How do you take your look from dull to hot in 5 minutes? Easy! Follow these quick 5 steps for easy-to-do sexy makeup. Even you can duplicate Kerry Washington’s sultry looks with these simple steps and end up the hottest girl at happy hour.
1. Even out skin. First remove the day’s build up on your face with a makeup cleansing cloth. Then reapply a quick mix of primer and foundation. (yes, you can mix them when you are in a tight). If you are oily, try Laura Geller Matte Maker. Not only does it absorb oil, but it makes makeup on all skin types last for hours. (It is my must have for finishing every photo shoot — even guys with bald heads!)
Dab concealer on inner eye. Check out these tips from Essence on concealer application and choices. My favorite concealer these days is Lorac Double Feature — Concealer on one end, and highlighter on the other. Apply highlighter on the brow bone and top your cheekbones for sexy glam.
3. Brighten Cheeks. Apply a cream blush on apples of cheeks. Try Nars Multiple in ANY color. I love the mix of Orgasm with Laguna. You can get glow and contour all in one.
4. Smoke up your eyes.
Fastest way to smokey eyes is to use a shimmery pencil in a deep color like navy, purple or emerald green. Try a waterproof formula like Sephora Keep Kohl! Waterproof Liner. At only $8 you can pick up a few. For a smokey look, smudge in your favorite complimentary eyeshadow up to the crease. I am such a fan of Urban Decay Loose Pigments. My favorite color go-to for sexy eyes Goddess — midnight blue with electric blue microglitter.
5. Glossy Lips. Gloss up your lips with super shine to put the icing your hot 5 minute makeup look. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss shines like a $25 gloss for a fraction of the price. I take advantage of the buy-one-get-one-free sales that are at least a monthly occurance at your favorite drugstore.
